Freshwater and Marine Aquarium Magazine sells two volumes of "For What
It's Worth" - the collected DIY columns of many years. The set sells
for around $20. Even if there is absolutely nothing of any use in there
and you've never heard of these books, I have at least gotten my chance
to put in a plug for them. They contain a lot of junk, but they're
worth the money for the good stuff that is in there.

If all else fails, just start puttsing with fiberglass.
